    Does anybody have a link to the firmware for this box?
    I messed up my Refee box and want to reflash the firmware.
    The Refee website only supplies a firmware for an older version (c03ref) of the box.
    Mine is a f16ref type.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I think the model you get is older one, I suggest you could upgrade .

    Hi! I have to solve my own problem related to ethernet connection (here http://androidforums.com/google-tv/...gle-tv-box-cortex-a9-smart-android-4-0-a.html). Since firmware arch contains file named 'refee120710bgzp-120827noapk-4ethernet.zip' I think it solves some ethernet problems. Please can you remeber and give me reference where it was taken from? May be there is some discussion about this fix?

    I have updated firmware for this,dated 25092012.

    I hit upon people reporting the firmware of the G-Box Midnight working like a charm on the Refee M6 device (f16ref).
    Updates of the firmware/ROM can be found at:
    G-Box | Software and ROMS

    I installed the firmware dated 2012-10-03, it runs smoothly and it is rooted.
    However you need to install Superuser from the Play store and update the su binary since the su included is a legacy one not asking for su permissions when running apps that need root access.

    What about ethernet? There is warning about 2012-10-03 rom. It is good for midnight v2.1 in other cases ethernet connection will not work. Do you tested ethernet?

    No I use wifi connection. But It should not be too hard to download both the 3-10 and the 25-9 firmware. If the 3-10 doesn't work on your device, you can flash 25-9 afterwards.

    I don't know why all think that the G-Box Midnight ROMs are better than the stock ROMs. The bug with an actual Youtube-App is still there. They have bundled the ROM with an older Version of the app, okay, but with any updated app that uses features from Andoid 4.1 you will have the same problem. The MediaLauncher is not so important for me as I use XBMC instead. Annoying is that the bar at the bottom doesn't hide because of netflix compatibility. Does anybody know how to change that? Don't know how to search, because I have no idea how this bar at the bottom is named.

    No use. Ethernet adapter was not found by 3-10 at all. My device PCB is marked as "a11 v1.0" (at the end of all i have opened my box to look inside to be shure).
